Jonathon Winters passed this week. There isn't much here
except an unsold quiz show with him on the panel but his humor was wild, crazy, and clean. If anyone watched Jack Paar or later on Dean Martin, his humor always kept you laughing even to the point of tears from laughter. His appearence in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and the Russians are Coming The Russians are Coming!!!!!!!!!!!! made a somewhat standard comedy that much more funny.
He did a few dramas as well as A Game of Pool
in The Trilight Zone in which he played a pool Hustler (Jack Klugman to become the best of the best. Good bye Mr Winters, you and your humor will be missed.

I must admit I'm not familiar with his work, though I've seen a couple things with him. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places.

I'd love to see his 15-minute series from the mid-1950s.

I remember the commercials he made for Popsicle,particular;y since I had an class in called AV materials with Dr. Staten Oates. This was at the time of no DVD or CD's or players for them or recorders. Just phonographs, tape recorders (not even cassette recorders)acetate projectprs, opegue projectors, and film projectors.
We used old commercials for the film projectors and I used Mr. Winter's commercials.
I seem to recal in the last year of Mork and Mindy, he was Mork's son(program they age backwards from Ork).

I saw some episodes of the final season of "Morn and Mindy" about 3 or 5 years ago. I'm still trying to block them out.

What were they thinking?
